The Best Things About Being an EDM DJ/Producer

Posted at May 28th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

So we’ve explained to you the downsides of being a DJ, but it’s not all about struggling to get a gig and feeling critical about your work, there are upsides too! You love music and there are a lot of perks about being in this field! So here are some of the best things about being a dance music DJ/Producer!

# Your skills are always increasing. You are like a sponge on the job as you’ll never stop learning. It’s an endless field and the more you stay in it, the more knowledge you’ll gain.

# You enjoy music more. When you’re making music as well, your appreciation for the craft grows and you can actually tell what’s good music and why you’re enjoying it.


# You can make money doing what you love. This is probably the best thing. You can make money doing something you’d do in your free time anyway!

# Hearing your music in a club/ on the radio is the best thing ever! This is definitely a a great feeling and you can’t dent it. #ProudMoment.


# It doesn’t need to be expensive. People say that you have to buy a lot of fancy equipment and a spend a lot of cash but it doesn’t need to be that way. You can download trial versions of FL Studio or Ableton Live, or buy permanent options for under INR 5,000. Unless you’re a gear junkie, the only major investment you need to make is with your time!

# Getting to play in front of a jumping crowd. The energy, the screams, the love! Playing in front of a crowd that’s actually responding to your music is awesome!

# You aren’t stuck in a 9-5 job! You don’t have a boring routine where you wake up at the same time everyday, go to the same office, see the same people, and come home. It’s way more dynamic and interesting!

# You can travel a lot for gigs. You don’t need to be stuck in one city. Put yourself out there and score some gig. You can travel across the country easily enough and if you make it big then you can score international gigs too!
